Palestinian Family Evicted by Israeli Police

Israeli Police Have Evicted a Palestinian Family

Israeli Police Have Evicted a Palestinian Family from their home in Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem, and arrested 8 international solidarity activists that were staying on the property.

The evicted Al-Kurd family have been staging a 3 1/2 month popular campaign against their eviction, establishing a protest camp and regular community actions (www.sheikhjarrah.com)

At around 3:30am, Israeli police arrived at the property of the Al- Kurd family. Eight internationals, from the USA, Canada, Britain and Sweden, were situated in the protest camp established on the Al-Kurd family property. They have been arrested and are currently in Israeli custody in Jerusalem.

This eviction has occurred despite international outrage and objections to the planned eviction, including a formal protest from the United States (see http://www.haaretz.co.il/hasen/spages/1005342.html). The decision paves the way for the takeover of 26 multi-storey houses in the neighbourhood, threatening to make 500 Palestinians homeless and signifying the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Occupied East Jerusalem by the Israeli State.
